Planned Parenthood is probably not even aware of their almost-comical hypocrisy in one of their recent tweets.
In an attempt to declare their solidarity with the Black Lives Matter movement in light of officer-involved shootings in Minnesota and Louisiana, they tweeted out a link to an article entitled: “23 Everyday Actions Punishable by Death if You’re Black.”
In the image accompanying the link was a protester’s sign that read: “Stop Killing Black Children!” The sign’s message was flanked by handguns.
We deserve to live. We deserve to survive. We deserve to thrive.
Being Black should not be a capital offense.https://t.co/f2Ly5hD9WC

So, the message is that killing black children with guns is bad. Killing black children with abortion is perfectly acceptable. In fact, it’s a woman’s absolute, constitutional right that must remain as unregulated as possible.
One leader in the pro-life community – who happens to be black – is repulsed by this hypocrisy, pointing out that there are more blacks killed by abortion in one day than blacks killed by cops in one year. Ryan Bomberger with the Radiance Foundation writes:
Whites are killed by cops, according to a database created by the Washington Post twice as much as blacks. Out of a total of 990 killed, 494 (or 49.9%) were white and 258 (or 26%) were black. 782 of those killed, or 79%, were armed with a deadly weapon. But hey, let’s only report when unarmed black individuals are victims of police brutality. This is a deliberate and despicable attempt by mainstream media to color the issue.
Just to put things into perspective, Planned Parenthood kills more unarmed black lives in one day than police are accused of killing in one entire year. (These Planned Parenthood-caused deaths of black unarmed lives in the womb amount to 266 a day, which is 30%–the percentage of the nation’s abortions among blacks—of the 323,999 abortions that generates over $200 million annually for the abortion chain.) The hypocrisy of #BlackLivesMatter leaders screamed loudly as they recently announced solidarity with the pro-abortion movement. Apparently, black lives matter only some of the time.
So, armed with the one-sided reporting, #BlackLivesMatter leaders (who have no use for the facts) declare there is an epidemic of cops killing innocent black people. There are 45,672,250 black Americans (including those who are biracial); I’m one of them. The 258 police-caused African-American deaths in 2015 amount to 0.000006% of the black population. It’s tragic but not an epidemic. But if you tweet it a million times and mainstream media reports on it daily, how can you blame people for thinking this is widespread?
